A golfer has won a major competition more than once in his career, and the Masters is no exception to that norm.

Some of those past champions, like Tiger and Phil, are genuinely long shots to win the green jacket at the 2023

tournament that will take place at Augusta National in April.

World No. 1 Rory McIlroy is the 9-1 favourite to win the Masters for the first time, as Yardbarker noted in December.

Scottie Scheffler, the defending champion and No. 2 in the world, is now sitting at 12-1 on DraftKings.

After that, the odds only become more intriguing because 2021 Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama is currently a 35-1 long shot.

Former champion Dustin Johnson, who is currently signed to LIV Golf, is priced at 16-1, while last year's victor Patrick Reed is a 50-1 long shot.

A few current repeat Masters champions receive even worse treatment from sportsbooks. Phil Mickelson has won three green jackets over his career, but Lefty is not considered to be a strong favourite to follow in his footsteps.

. According to DraftKings, Mickelson, who garnered more attention last year for mouthing off than for playing golf, is currently a 130-1 long shot.
